Thursday, March 31, 2016 – ZIPPITY DOO DAH!
It time for the 6th ANNUAL FONDREN’S ZIPPITY DOO DAH® WEEKEND, April 1-2, 2016 and SWEET POTATO QUEENS® CONVENTION March 30-April 3, 2016! to benefit the children of Blair Batson Hospital.
That is correct queens. It is Sweet Potato Queen Parade Time in Mississippi.
I hope Elf that you have your Queencentric on and that you and Miss Annie will attend this year. I am not able attend this year, but please know that I plan to have my own personal SPQ weekend beginning tomorrow with my pearls and pajamas party. A little music. A little dancing around the room. A few drinks. That sort of thing. Yes, it is a normal Friday night, but during ZIPPITY DOO DAH it is a pearls and pajama party! Wish The Twins were here from last year.
Saturday evening, I plan to march up and down the street in my crown and boa and my Rodeo Queen outfit. Should I go with the inflatable crown or the diamond one? I hope those glitter boots from Zappos arrive in time. I plan to do this until I see the first police car.
Sunday perhaps I can talk SPQ Ms. Navasota into a bathrobe brunch. I will take the Abuelos’ diablo shrimp and a very large thermos of bloody Marys to her house. Should we desire mimosas, I could also bring a bottle of champagne and a few drops of orange juice.
Meanwhile – some photos from last year’s Zippity Doo Dah. Thank you Jill Conner Browne, for all that you do for all of us.
